FIREFIGHTERS will bring out all the bells and whistles when they open the doors to the station this weekend.
Families can have a look at the fire engines and rescue equipment up close, plus have a chat to the brave men and women about the work they do to keep the community safe.
The Open Day is an opportunity to show people that Fire and Rescue NSW firefighters do so much more than fight fires, Station officer Rob Gander said.
"We do fight fires and save people from burning buildings, but our mission and our capabilities extend far beyond fire response," he said.
"From road crashes, hazardous material incidents and natural disasters to urban search and rescue and humanitarian relief. "Our firefighters are prepare for anything and ready to help anyone, anytime and anywhere."
In winter firefighters see a 10 per cent increase in the number of home fires, the Open Day is on from 10am to 2pm at Carthage Street Fire Station on Saturday.
